cause winter is back. Yep, the tank tops can go back on the shelf (or under several layers of clothing) as it was back to being pretty darn cold today. Oh, and more fun, pouring rain. Even better? We had a playdate at the zoo today and realized a few minutes before no way to get in touch with the person we were meeting tp see if they wanted to wait for a warmer day.
So, we went to the Reykjavik Family Park & Zoo and sure enough, our friend was waiting in the cafe. What happened next? Well, there were some Little Tikes like play houses outside, so Kelsey, Caitlin and K., our friend's daughter, spent the next hour running around outside in the pouring rain...and loving every minute of it.
Once their hands were sufficiently numb and their clothes sopping wet, we figured they were ready to go. Not a chance! Caitlin insisted that we walk around the entire park before we could go. So we went to the giant pirate ship and the three once again played happily for about 30 minutes. Finally, the freezing parents convinced the girls it was time to go with a promise of lunch. This was not before they played in wet stones, hurtled down slippery slides and in general, romped around like it was 70 degrees out, which by the way, is now swelteringly warm for us.
Yes, my children will soon be mistaken for Icelandic kids! Okay, except for the hair....
NOTE: I finally got around to putting up the Easter photos. I will label soon, but for now, the first is of the way too much candy in their baskets. The next batch is of an egg hunt at the home of Berta, Caitlin's school administrator. She had us over for a lovely brunch along with another English/Icelandic family. Last but not least are two photos of the egg hunt Cait conducted in our front yard.
